RIYADH — The Command and Control Center in the Ministry of Health has issued a set of updates on dealing with persons who have completed anti-coronavirus vaccinations to immunize them against any infections from the virus.
These are in conformity with the updated recommendations by the National Committee for Contagious Diseases.
The ministry defined people completing their immunizations as those who have spent two weeks from the date of the second dose of an approved 2-dose vaccine; or one week has elapsed since they had taken an approved single-dose vaccine; or two weeks have elapsed since taking the first dose of a 2-dose vaccine and they have a proven previous affliction with COVID-19.
The ministry confirmed that persons completing their immunizations can socialize with other people of the same category; that is, those completing their immunizations, or when they are present in public places.
At the same time, the ministry said that there is no need to conduct laboratory tests when mingling with an infected case, unless similar symptoms to those of the COVID-19 virus/viral infection, appear.
As to health practitioners, the ministry drew attention to the necessity to comply with the precautionary measures during their presence in the health facilities.
In addition, they ought to undergo a laboratory test on the appearance of any symptoms similar to the COVID-19 virus/viral infection, irrespective of whether there was any socializing (mingling?) with suspicious cases or not.
